If you listened to the latest installment of Comic Dorks, and shame on you if you haven’t, you would have heard Jim Zub hint at his future involvement in a Big Two title. Well the bat’s out of the bag and we have the important details for you after the jump.
Batman: Arkham City wasn’t just a success as a video game it has also successfully spun off toy and staute lines. Chalk up another tally in the statue category because The Joker is coming to a store near you!
Next Spring Injustice: Gods Among us, the video game collaboration between DC and NetherRealm Studios, will release and right along side it DC Collectibles will be launching a new action figure line. Take the jump for more details and who the first figures will be of!
If you are going to look like a tool wearing a Snuggie, you might as well look like a cool tool, with Superhero Stuff’s Joker Costume Snuggly Sleeved Blanket.

Or – “What’s Black And Blue And Read All Over?”
It’s weird to think about the “old” DC Universe as a whole. Both Blue Devil and Black Lightning seem to me like relatively new heroes (at least comparatively speaking) but both date back over a quarter-century. Now, the sensational character finds of 1977 and 1984 have come together in the brave new world of the New 52, for all new adventures. How do Black Lightning and Blue Devil fare? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Steeling Myself For The Very Worst…”
Nearly 20 years after the fact, a portion of my comics-reading brain has yet to forgive certain creators and concepts for their roles during that Dork Age of comics. The concept of Team 7 dates back to early Wildstorm books, and served as an attempt to tie several series together, but only really succeeded in showing how seven different heroes were basically all the same guy. Will this iteration finally let the healing process begin? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Batman! Always Batman! Always Driving Us Bats!”
The saddest part about the popularity of Batman comes in the fact that the various incarnations of the Dark Knight (from Dick Sprang to Adam West to Deidrich Bader) get short shrift in favor of whatever is the latest and most badass. (Witness the Major Spoilers Podcast’s inability to talk about Batman without mentioning Christopher Nolan.) While I like Batman, I think that one of the most awesome parts of the character is his flexibility, and how he is as much at home fighting Ras Al Ghul as he is dog-fighting the ghost of the Red Baron. Will Detective Comics impress or distress? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Well, I’m Not TOO Far Behind…”
On Wednesday, the ghosts and goblins came out to scare us out of our minds, and to allow us all to unleash the slutty truth within us. DC Comics also tapped into the holiday zeitgeist, unleashing an old favorite on the world with little fanfare, but is it a fright-fest or a huge mess? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Dipping A Toe Back Into The Pool…”
It’s been some time since I regularly read the adventures of The Flash, mostly because the post-Final Crisis tales didn’t really make much use of Barry Allen as a character. There was very little in the Brightest Day-era Flash stories that justified the character’s resurrection, as little to nothing about the tales being told required that the Flash starring in them be Barry Allen. Has DC finally fixed this problem? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
